beach, beautiful, imagery, imagination, innocence, love, romantic,
by Emile Pinet |
Cascading waves wash ashore
tickling our toes as we stroll,
set a thousand jewels sparkling
on the shoal...
Smiles summon sweet emotions
as we walk upon the beach
hand in hand
under a starry sky,
to build castles in the sand...
And in a state of elated bliss
two fledgling souls unite,
for all eternity...
Hopes and tears
define the essence of living.
And yet, love offers hearts much more,
Agony and ecstasy meld,
fueling each passionate kiss.
And consumed by desire,
I've never felt a love
quite like this...
by Silent One |
Let us embrace
like twilight kisses the sun goodnight.
Indulge in hues of scarlet, crimson and lilac,
until the salutation of stars .
In the nothingness of silence,
our souls will whisper sweet symphonies,
as we flow with sensual tones of night.
Tenderness of touch will compose a concerto,
along the nakedness of your innocence.
I will hold you like a violin,
feel smooth sensations of your strings.
Pulsate like a passionate pianist,
caressing silky ivory and satin ebony keys.
Upon the first scent of dawn,
I will watch your heart sigh,
as you lay breathless in my arms -
and become the nature of my poetry.

depression, family, forgiveness, introspection
Standing on the broken cement of the back porch
silently staring into the skies
and talking to myself
Fingers struggling to keep appearances
windshield wipers across my cheek
watercolors gone white
Flippant, fanatical, furious
patient, protective, passionate
trying to love the beast
Sending dreams to the clean ears of the open air
returned quickly, clutched in your mouth, crushed
presented for reward
Dead birds delivered to my doorstep
my nature wants to heal them, bury them
yours waits and wags its tail
by Marti Sutherland |
I no longer recall my yesterdays
or the ho-hum, mundane things I once did
The years I spent suspended in life's haze
Shielding the wounded heart, I shyly hid
Until perchance the day I found someone
Whose tender heart reflected shades of blue
He wore a dark mask, but it came undone
When I searched his sad eyes, twas then I knew
Our days were filled with laughter and great joy
Long nights consumed with passionate desire
No reasons to hide in disguise as coy
In the throes of love we gladly conspire
No trace of deep loneliness we once knew
No memories of the days ~ before you
by Paul Callus |
love, rain, water,
I am not a rain dog
With my tail between my legs
Dying to run home in haste
Away from showers that gradually increase
And then come pounding heavily down
Like sheets of splintered pearly glass
I am not a loner
Who leads a wasted life
On doorsteps sharing aching pain
With others who live rough
Deprived of warmth and comfort
I am a lover
I inhale the smell
Enjoy the caressing feel
Of seductive teasing raindrops
They fall around
With sweetest sound
Passionate the call

passionred, love, red,
Red is the crayon that I love to use.
So vivid and bright without any abuse.
I color so lively and make each stroke count.
Even making the water red in the fount.
In my pictures the hair on everyone's head.
Yes you guessed it, they're all a bright colored red!
The seasons of summer and winter and fall.
I color them all red without any appall.
So if you're an artist you plainly can see.
Everything will be red if you depend on me.
If you've heard like me, as it's often been said,
That "Passionate people always love red!"

one flame flickers blue
as love awakes a journey
connecting a friend
as red flame sparks holding hands
tame harmony remains “Love”
holding each other
our own little universe
in a language all our own
burning one unified flame
flickering flame sings
orange green red blue one soul
passionate love grows
candle ignites luminous
holding my heart existence
I love you
I love you in Spanish, te amo and France, Jet ’aime

love, mystery, passion,
Siphoned light gropes passengers
Hopeful for luminescent hearts,
Arching underneath bombazine drapes
Dusted with passionate legacies
Of original sin and the primogeniture son,
Wicked for nighttime plots savouring
Spicy love, exponential in a vivid darkness.

to my full lips longing to be sealed
by an endearing and passionate kiss!

happiness, love, passion, uplifting,
Evening smiles at lovers
Above the sparking
Waters of Venice.
I long for you..
Moments spent lingering
Underneath its entwined castles.
If you wait...
Amber leaves swirl
Leaving vivid afternoons
Alive with romance and
..Someday, I will come
Illuminate a thousand
As the rarest jewels.
To tell you that...
Slow dancing in the

If, my darling we dance again with memories
of smokey eyes from the scent of love that lingers
in thoughts of yesterday when dreams were found
in passionate moments unrestrained from the world
lost in wrapped limbs of illusion that watered
our flower's bloom in the meadow of our soul
where wings were found to carry us to shaded realms
of wondrous passions that coloured the rainbow
crossing the landscape of our hearts in glorious beauty
to meet a lover
yesterday was a stranger
we will meet again

Love is that enticing roller coaster ride we just can’t resist,
and no matter the danger we stubbornly persist.
It scares and excites us all at the same time.
It’s a feeling totally sublime.
We relish its many new thrills
but we cry when it suddenly chills.
Yet we’ll happily buy another ticket
and run to it lickety-splicket.
We never ever tire of its heavenly bliss,
craving its passionate kiss
as it makes our hearts beat faster and faster,
'til it has become our Master.
Yes, love is the ride of a lifetime
and worth every single dime.

Through whispers in my nighttime sky
your attraction caresses
in such stunning passionate glow
longing a soul to impress
With every gaze I embrace
I'm pulled to you
ever closer a heavenly scent
wafting ever true
In glorious pools of you I wade
if only momentarily
never wishing to miss a thing
Upon a solitary lunar breeze
affections are cast above
heartbeats play along in tune
to our special kind of love
Oh moon my gorgeous moon
I so graciously swoon

her vision moves me
and I'm consumed
flooding my senses
as I become enthralled
with her all
She is the art
off my canvas
in passionate heat
with strokes that repeat
studied and taught
caressed in deep thought
but dare not wander
keeping such beauty in sight

The arboretum looks as it did then
With silver maples dancing in the breeze
Wildflowers bloom within the narrow glen
Remember how we kissed beneath the trees?
One special oak displays the heart you carved
With our initials set within its wall
We were so young and yet our souls seemed starved
So passionate are teens when first they fall
Today I came to view the art we left
Surrounded by the blooms, the trees, the birds
And though my heart seeks you, I am bereft
Of promises defined by long lost words
I miss that passion coursing through our veins
Now you have left and loneliness remains

love, love hurts,
I saw you across the room
You were with my best friend
Dancing to a slow song -Harvest Moon
You held her tightly in your arms
Then planted a passionate kiss
Oh Its My Party and i will cry if I want to
Cry if I want to and I did
I was deeply hurt and shocked
If You Could Read My Mind
You would know my hurtful thoughts
Oh my heart aches so badly
So your friend came up to me
He spoke calmly softly
He called me Blue Angel
Said he would never leave me
Feelings he had for me was strongBlue Bayyou
Strong feelings for me
He said "Together we would go
to the BlueBayou where the
sailboats go a float int Blue Bayou

love, lost, goodbye, betrayal, goodbye, lost, love,
"Last Sigh of Goodbye"
charming candlelight lost radiant glaze
emotions vanished into twilight dust
broken pieces of heart swallowed in maze
as passionate masquerade died in lust.
fleeting embers of deceit bid adieu'
one last sigh of goodbye stole life's faint breath
a love letter spoke words of love untrue
in painful fond farewell eyes closed in death.
beyond dark grave lies loneliness and tears
'tis better to have loved and lost in life
yet ultimate betrayal spirit sears
impaling soul with wounds deep thrust of knife.
painted finale' carved in canvas cries
caressing love in bouquets of goodbyes.

velvet lips caress
passionate hunger invites
velvet lips emote
expressions of love laced touch
warm creamy delight.
velvet lips tempt heart
haunting as a sequined star
pressing moist amour.
velvet lips entwine
taste sweet honey nectar kiss
velvet lips steal breath
smoldering hot coals of flesh

heart, innocence, love, passion,
She’s wild, a passionate heart of love inspired
Playing a violin, masterful and free
So fast and fierce, her every lust is desired
Violin sparks aflame burning intensely
She screams with pleasure of the fire’s indulgence
Peak of passion has reached beyond innocence
Her mouth open with flames entering inside
She loves her tremendous trek, her awesome ride
Happy Valentines Day

music, night, storm,
I pray as storm and night duet,
a dance amidst a choir of rain.
wrung clouds strum strong and passionate
to cart away my deepest pain.
In every grand, thunderous note,
God’s loving heart beats in my soul.
Across the darkness, lightning floats,
to heaven skyward, I extol.
Winds sing with love blown rhythmically
just like sweet-sounding nightingales.
Clear sheets of rain course through lithe trees
bending to meet the river dale.
Then soft comes dawn, I praise the storm
in gleam of misty earth transformed.

I stared deeply into his dreamy deep blue eyes
So full of passionate love, they could not disguise
He’d call me his dove, I scarcely believed he was mine
Safely wrapped in his loving arms, we’d gently entwine
I’d succumb to his charms and be simply floating on air
When our ruby lips met, green-eyed girls would stare
Forever his girl - I mustn’t forget, but it was not true
When I met his mother, all my dreams fell through
Told me there was another, this made me oh so sad
His true love lay with the sea, as it did his late dad
He never truly loved me, now we are both set free

husband, love, mystery
How could I have known
that the beauty of it all
would rob me of coherent speech.
That my eyes would find all else
pale in comparison.
Ears that once they have heard
such a passionate calling
would never want anothers song.
How could I have known

beautiful, desire, love, romance,
Under a spray of cold water
Sizzles upon impact on my passionate body
Droplets of desire trickling down
You are the water phantom
Flame and water ignites a spark
Building intense harmony through silent chaos
Desire burning inside
Sensations brewing in hot lava
Your love letters licking my mind
Every alphabet is a glinting beacon in my unlit chamber
You are the conductor of my orchestra making melodies
Together we make beautiful rhythms in giving and taking

dance, love, poetry, romance, romantic,
Dance with my words,
and I'll dance with yours
Let's do a pen pirouette,
lets make some passionate scribbling noise
I'll let you teach me how to move
in perfect iambic meter
Take me through my paces just right,
doing odd cadence swirls
as we play follow the leader
you can hear
I heard you dear,
your voice is so clear
Now come close, closer here,
let me whisper in your ear
The things I want to say,
how I do love you ...
you love me too
Dance with me,
I'll dance with your words,
and you'll dance with mine
Let's do a pen tango dip step,
synchronized thoughts forever entwined
